Paolisso Presents Chesapeake Distinguished Lecture November 9SALISBURY, MD---Salisbury University’s fall Environmental Studies Colloquium Series culminates with this semester’s Chesapeake Distinguished Lecturer, Dr. Michael Paolisso.
His presentation, “Culture and Resource Management of the Chesapeake Bay,” is 7 p.m. Wednesday, November 9, in Henson Science Hall Room 243.
Interim chair of the University of Maryland, College Park’s Anthropology Department, Paolisso has conducted environmental fieldwork in Venezuela, Honduras, Ecuador, Kenya, Nepal and the U.S.
Through these studies, he seeks to demonstrate how cultural models of the environment have a direct bearing on the use and management of natural resources, and how these models can be used to improve stakeholder understanding, as well as dialogue and collaborations in addressing environmental issues.
